Mobile Game NFL Runner Launches

Posted September 18th, 2013 at 7:30 pm


NFL Runner: Football Dash released today for both iOS (download from iTunes) and Android (download from Google Play) devices.

Similar to games like Temple Run or Subway Surfers the challenge is to run for as long as possible. NFL Runner is free to play and supported by microtransactions. Players swype the screen left and right to move laterally, up to jump, and down to slide in an effort to collect coins and power-ups and avoid obstacles that would bring the run to an end.

EA Sports currently has the NFL exclusive for consoles but that deal has never extended to mobile. Several games carry the NFL branding but no contract with the Player’s Association. That is the case with NFL Runner which has no real players but the ability to choose from NFL teams for the character to represent. The actual team uniform however is only available as in-game purchase of $3. Power-ups, upgrades, coins, and stars can also be purchased.

    There used to be a Steve Young game I used to play on that was similiar to this. Will check it out!

    Since mobile developers are eligible for an NFL license, I wonder why no one has considered creating an NFL game that can make use of many of the mobile streaming peripherals that would allow users to also stream to their TV?

    I was thinking some kind of interaction with a console would be even better, but I’m sure that would somehow encroach into infringement territory 🙁
